Carpal Tunnel Syndrome And Shiatsu-Anma

My first ever encounter with “Carpal Tunnel Syndrome” happened years ago in Israel, when I was employed in an integrative healthcare clinic. I was assigned to a woman in her 60’s who was an office worker and was scheduled for an operation on her hand due to having this condition. She was also smoking chronically and I could feel her body was very stiff. I came to realized that addressing the problem locally is just insufficient for a good effect.

So it took me only two sessions to alleviate her condition to her great surprise and to lead her into canceling her scheduled operation since she got amazingly much better!

During those sessions I worked mostly on her forearm (Meridians: Pericardium and Tripple-Warmer), pressing and stretching/rotating her hand and working on her upper back/scapular areas and neck to better circulate them. Her chest was very stiff (PC energy) so I had to palm pressure it to improve circulation and breathing a bit.

After those two sessions she stayed more to work on the whole body for stress relief and general function. We realized she has much more pain and stiffness in the body and gradually she got better. She became a regular client of mine for a long time and never needed a Carpal Tunnel surgery since then!

Ever since then I had many more treatments for CTS and other wrist and arm cases in which I found out Shiatsu and Anma to be very helpful and beneficial. In fact this is one of my highest rates of success in helping people! So if you have such a disability or know anyone who may need my help please contact me and allow me to help!

What Is KI (Qi) Energy

“Ki” energy (Chi “Qi”) is a fundamental concept in many traditional Asian martial arts, philosophy and traditional medicine. It basically refers to the cosmic life energy that flows through all matter in the universe and unites all living things, just like air, and provides life. KI flows endlessly throughout the universe, throughout the cosmic cycle (TAO) dynamically shifting in between 2 poles: YIN & YANG. Those 2 poles are like complementary phases of KI energy and can be considered like High & low, Day & Night, Activity & Rest, Masculinity and Femineity etc. In order to fully merge with the KI we must be aware of it and understand its nature! The capability of allowing KI to run through us naturally and with no interruptions is considered the core manifestation of health in Oriental medicine. A more modern approach to understanding “KI” may be the use of “ Aerobic energy ” compared to “ Anaerobic energy ” in our body. The Aerobic energy in a protein-based energy pro

Tanden (TanTien): The Center Of Our Being

For many centuries the source of our being, power and health is known among the sages in the far east as the body’s center of gravity, or the “field of longevity” ( Jap = Tanden; Chi = Tantien). For centuries this center was cultivated and maintained by healers, martial-artists and masters of many types of arts who believed that perfection depends in utmost utilization of this center, both physically and mentally. In fact, sources point three divisions of this center in our body: The upper “Tantien” (3rd eye) as the mental center of wisdom, the middle center (middle of the chest) as the center of emotions and conception and empathy, and the lower center as the physical center, the center of gravity in our bodies and source of our true strength. Breathing into and from this center (lower center) is considered as the most fundamental element in maintaining health and optimizing our body’s powers and functioning! In my personal experience over the course of practice I noticed a significan
